Can I come and visit you in Kabale?
Answer: Yes, it is possible to come and visit us (provided it suits the children and staff program). If interested, please contact us at email@example.com.
Is it possible to volunteer at ETCP?
Answer: We have a fantastic team of staff members with long experience running the day to day work in Kabale. Therefore, most of the time we are not in need of extra hands. An exception is when children are in their longest school holiday which occurs around 1st december – 31st january every year. So if you want to be a volunteer at ETCP it is during that period it will be possibe.
As a volunteer you must be minimum 25 years old (for women we see it as an advantage if you are even older than that) and we put much emphasis on personal suitability. It is important that there if a specific purpose with the stay and that a program is formed before the trip. The children love learning new things so if you have a certain talent or interest you want to share it will be appreciated. Previous volunteers have been football coaches, held work shops and initiated different projects (for example art, farming, first aid and cooking)-
Kindly note that being a vulunteer at Emma & Therese Children’s Project is free of charge but you are responible for all costs associated with the stay yourself (flights, visa, transfer, vaccins, insurance, food, accomodation and transports etc.)
If interested in voluntary work kindly send your application to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Why are there so few girls in ETCP?
Answer: The reason why there are few girls in our project is due to the fact that our primary focus is on children who have been living on the streets and that category in Kabale consists almost exclusively of boys. Of course there are many vulnerable girls in Uganda as well but they are harder to identify (they are often being exploited and used as housemaids in peoples homes). We do our best to assist the girls we manage to locate. We also actively work towards strengthening girls positions generally, for example by having the same number of girls- as boys catagories in our football tournament which has led to more girls playing the sport and it being more socially accepted than before.
